Configuring the IP Static Route Adjustment Interval
The ip route static adjust-time command allows you to configure the IP static route adjustment timer to any interval from 1 to 60 seconds. The benefit of reducing the timer from the 60-second default value is to increase the convergence when static routes are used. However, reducing the interval can be CPU-intensive if the value is set very low and you have a large number of static routes configured.

This section documents the new ip route static adjust-time command.
ip route static adjust-time
To change the time interval for IP static route adjustments during convergence, use the ip route static adjust-time command in global configuration mode. To reinstate the default adjustment time of 60 seconds, use the no form of this command.
ip route static adjust-time seconds
no ip route static adjust-time seconds
By default, static route adjustments are made every 60 seconds. To adjust the timer to any interval from 1 to 60 seconds, enter the ip route static adjust-time command.
The benefit of reducing the timer from the 60 second default value is to increase the convergence when static routes are used. However, reducing the interval can be CPU intensive if the value is set very low and you have a large number of static routes configured.
In the following example, the adjustment time for static routes has been changed from the default 60 seconds to 30 seconds:Router(config)# ip route static adjust-time 30
To remove the 30-second adjust time interval and reinstate the default 60-second value, enter the no ip static adjust-time command:Router(config)# no ip route static adjust-time 30
